Fla. cops nab robbers using woman's webcam


BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Gotcha!

That's what can happen when you've got a videocam in your house and burglars bop in.

Too bad for the burglars -- the homeowner was watching the video at the time, reports the Palm Beach Post.

"This is unbelievable," Jeanne Thomas of Boynton Beach told the 911 dispatcher. "The cat is freaking out. The dogs are hiding."

Thomas hadn't been checking the video for awhile but on Wednesday she logged onto the system from her office at Kaiser University in Fort Lauderdale.
